Default Shoes

In the past I've always walked past garage sale/thrift shop shoes. The idea of wearing someone else's shoes has never had any appeal. However, after taking dance classes I found that dance shoes can be found that have little or no wear. I suspect they were bought for a specific event, worn once and ended up in the back of someone's closet. In fact, I find that if I look with a discriminating eye there are actually lots of shoes that people buy and never wear. So I've relaxed a little about wearing used shoes and started keeping an eye out for exceptional bargains. I've been on a roll the last couple of days with a pristine pair of Merrell slip on leather walkers bought for a lady's daughter who hated them $15, a lightly worn pair of Birkenstock Mary Jane's $5, and a pair of Nike Lunarmx+ tennis shoes that show no wear at all for $20. Not a bad haul!

Like these but all black: Amazon
Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly.
Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably,
and never regret anything that made you smile.

Women are Angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick. We are flexible like that
